Centre appoints Rahul Navin as acting director of Enforcement Directorate

Rahul Navin, special director, Enforcement Directorate has been appointed as the acting director of the ED as SK Mishra’s tenure ended on Friday.

A 1993-batch IRS officer, Navin was appointed as Special Director in the Enforcement Directorate in November 2020.

He has been working as an Officer on Special Duty at the Enforcement Directorate, since November 2019. Earlier, Navin worked as an Additional Director and Course Director, 63rd Batch of the Indian Revenue Service.

In July, the Supreme Court had allowed the extension of Enforcement Directorate Director Sanjay Kumar Mishra’s tenure until September 15 and made clear to the centre that there will be no more extension in Mishra’s tenure.

The top court had on July 11 held as “illegal” two successive extensions of one year each granted to Mishra and said the Centre’s orders were in “breach” of its mandamus in the 2021 verdict that the IRS officer should not be given further term.

It had also curtailed Mishra’s extended tenure to July 31 from November.Mishra was first appointed the ED director for two years on November 19, 2018. Later, by an order dated November 13, 2020, the central government modified the appointment letter retrospectively and his two-year term was changed to three years.The government also promulgated an ordinance last year under which the tenure of the ED and CBI chiefs could be extended by up to three years after the mandated term of two years.
